Dip arrived; dipped, varnished, and grassed, and they are done!
These are my first two 28mm Napoleonic British figures EVER. It is just funny I have painted so many toy soldiers, but never a Brit!
Obviously it is a pair of Perry figures, each with a very minor conversion. The Greenjacket has been given a bare officers head and his normal head was removed from the shako, which was then hollowed out and carefully inserted into his hand (which lost some fingers in the process to form the clenched fist look.
The Sergeant is a standard guy with a head swap from a Wargames Factory set of Danes I got at Fall In. I wanted to make him the grumpy veteran Irish sergeant, so went with a bit of rosacea from all the Irish spirits!
Overall I am very happy with how they turned out. It is funny, learning a new set of kit and the proper colors, but I think I did okay. The dip is dark, but I think it looks good... it is tricky, of course, with white pants (which need a light shade) and the red (which looks best with a dark) but I think the midground is fine.
Anyway... any suggestions, comments, critiques, or even "Good jobs!" you want to share, please do!:)
Huzzah! Long Live the Queen!
